Location:  RCSD County Office Room 101

Presenter: Lorie Yates (RCSD Science Specialist)

Description:  This is a half-day session that will focus on the layout of the new science framework for Biology and other high school life sciences (ex. botany, genetics, zoology).  We will explore the three dimensions of the new framework (science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas) and learn how these dimensions work together.  I will provide a resource guide that will help high school teachers prepare for the implementation of the new standards.  We will explore some lessons/activities that match old and new standards and that can be implemented this coming school year, including, but not limited to, the use of Gizmos.
